Name Games

Remember back when we showed you how the Politico’s deal with CBS prevented Tim Russert from mentioning the paper by name? Or how Dana Milbank referred to the Politico as a “Capitol Hill newspaper”? Or how the Politico wouldn’t mention Roll Call?

We have another example in the “Sssh…don’t mention Publication X by name” category: The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard, appearing on MSNBC Tuesday, elected to refer to Roll Call as “the Washington newspaper” instead of by name.

    It’s not so much what the Statesman turned up. I think that the real story here is what the newspaper in Washington turned up…
